Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have rarely been seen with their children at family events during the years, preferring to shield them from the spotlight. But recently, Angelina treated their son Knox and daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt to a visit to a California Renaissance fair. The trio’s bonding excursion occurred amid rumors that Jolie and Brad might someday reunite in the wake of his bombshell interview, in which he described himself as an emotional “retard” and confessed that his alcohol consumption at the time contributed to the crumbling of their marriage.
Calling the actress a “true renaissance woman,” the Daily Mail reported that Angelina was seen on Saturday with two of her children at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire in Irwindale, California. Shiloh, 10, and Knox, 8, reportedly enjoyed bonding with their mom as they experienced the delights of the festival, from corn on the cob to games.

Two bodyguards accompanied the actress, Shiloh, and Knox. Angelina, 41, was seen chatting with an appropriately costumed Renaissance fair participant, and the event included carnival games.
Jolie wore motorcycle boots, black skinny jeans, and a black bomber jacket. Shiloh toted a huge backpack, assumed to be used to help her carry home treasures from the festival, and the little girl wore shorts. Knox sported a purple jacket and boots, staying close to their famous mother.
The trio’s excursion takes place amid the world’s stunned reaction to Brad Pitt’s bombshell interview. Pitt described their split as comparable to “death,” confessing that he sees himself as an emotional “retard” who drank so much booze that it contributed to the downfall of his marriage.
Now, however, Brad says he has given up alcohol after admitting that his drinking became a “problem” during his relationship with Angelina.
“Truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good.”
Pitt also revealed that he has begun therapy, sharing that he took some time to find the right counselor.
“I just started therapy. I love it. I love it. I went through two therapists to get the right one,” said Brad.
And rather than drink booze, Pitt now has found the perfect replacement in “cranberry juice and fizzy water,” which he joked has given him “the cleanest urinary tract” in Los Angeles.
